in eastern ukraine support russia and view the government in kiev as hostile. today, both the government and the separatists say two ukrainian helicopters were shot down in the fighting. this amateur video shows a plume of smoke where the helicopter apparently crashed, though no wreckage has been found so far. the ukrainian government also claimed a surface-to-air missile brought down one of them. that hasn't been verified, but u.s. intelligence sources are treating the report as credible. one of the pilots, visibly injured, was later paraded around in a video released by pro-russian militants. ukrainian forces appear to stop at the edge of the city. vyacheslav ponomaryov, the self- proclaimed mayor of slavyansk, claimed there had been many casualties. "we were attacked, "he said. "our city is under siege." the offensive came as violence ratcheted up again. yesterday, militants took over the prosecutor's office in donetsk. police attempted to fight back with tear gas and stun grenades, but were overwhelmed by the crowd and fled. >> pelley: clarissa ward is joining us from donetsk. claris

are standing, are sanctions impacting russia or its supporters in eastern ukraine? >> that's a very difficult question to ask. you'd have to say the ultimate intention of these sanctions is to prevent a russian invasion of eastern ukraine and if that invasion does not happen, was it due to the sanctioners not. i suspect we might be arguing about that for months or years to come, but as rewards the conduct of pro russian groups in the east, they don't seem deterred at all, quite the contrary. they seem more emboldened on each day, going very much on the offensive, they are on the front, sanctions or not. >> barnaby phillips for us in donetsk in eastern you a crane, thank you. >> parliamentary elections, first time they have headed to the polls since the u.s. pulled out in 2011. there are reports of attacks outside the capitol. we are at a polling side in baghdad. how has the turnout been so far where you are? >> this polling station in central baghdad, they are voting just through those doors, has about 3,500 registered voters, about 1,000 people have turned up so far. now what an independent

they were awarded we thought no problem. >> just like russia's putin that went smoothly. >>> and mr. halperin, the play on veep i'm sure you heard that mr. allen. let's talk business. harry reid said democrats are holding talks about a vote to prove the keystone pipeline. is that actually going to happen? >> they're actually going to have a vote. and this is a real surprise. it's a sign of how worried democrats are about the senate. yesterday, i was out at the milken conference in los angeles, did a poll, including a lot of democrats, asking them what they thought the chances were republicans could take every 0 the senate. nate silver said around 60%. dave leonhart said around 61%. the democrats i talked to said it's more like 60%. they are worried about a republican senate. so you have harry reid saying he might take a vote on approving the keystone pipeline. what's not determined is, will this be something that's binding will this be more a sense of the senate, as they call it. but the key fact, 11 senate democrats have signed a letter to president obama saying they want him to ap
russia is now threatening american astronauts. >> why aldermen are taking issue with the mayor's plan to patch the city streets. >> the cast of the new star wars episode 7 movie is revealed.a ts morning in the shooting death of a 14-year-old girl. we'll have a *live update. a man tried to rob a mariano's in the south loop. we'll have details on his arrest. good morning, i'm dan ponce. and i'm erin mcelroy. let's go to demetrius ivory for a check of the weather. hi, demetrius. >> today will be like yesterday and like the day before that and the day before that. >> your popular this week. >> this is a cool looking system but it keeps raining as showers. >> occasionally she can be funny. >> that's what really happens during commercials. we shall clean it up. but there you go. sublet radar will continue. finally some music out there that i like. here is the deal. today, 20 percent chance of rain. it won't rain all day but we could see isolated showers across the entire area popping up sporadically we are under a very unsettled weather pattern. tonight we go down to 41. better chance of r
from russia and venezuela and you go down the list. what's at stake here is that the people who object to this pipeline -- i don't doubt their sincerity -- they would not allow us to buy oil from anybody or explore for oil here at home. the people objecting to this pipeline do not have an all-the-the-above approach when it comes to emergency energy f. you left it up to them -- energy. if you left it up to them we'd be doing windmills, solar, no nuclear power. so the president of the united states has turned this issue over to the most extreme people in the country when it comes to politics. they're trumping the unions. they're trumping the speaker, the former presiding officer. they are locking down developing an energy source that we need as a nation, and i just really regret that the president's let them take over this issue at a time when we need more oil from friendly people and less oil from people who hate our guts. dirty oil to me is buying oil from people who will take the proceeds and share it with terrorists. this oil content from canada is slightly greater in carbon content
if the europeans had another option rather than depending on russia for its energy, that would be a very big reason-but nevertheless they're saying this isn't about jobs. this is about oil companies getting richer. you say what? >> the state department says there will be 20,000 direct jobs created by this. these are working-class jobs, people with better wages and better benefits, whose children will go to better school and whose future for the family will be brighter for darryl hannah to minimize the impact on those families to show incredible sensitivity to a group of americans having a very hard time now. she can fuss with the state department. it's the state department says this is about at least 20,000 direct jobs. >> congressman, good seeing you again. senator landrieu, if you're watching, you're always invited to come on. >>> severe storms moving across the south at this hour. forcing thousands of evacuations. are we looking at the same today? we are on it, all over it. >> go! now. >> what? >> now! we need it right away! we cannot let the fans down. don't worry! the united states postal serv
decision, not a scientific one. this is politics at its mouth here. stuart: russia's vladimir putin. why don't we -- why don't we in america approve the export of liquefied natural gas? that would give us a great deal of leverage on energy over vladimir putin. >> absolutely. another example how our president does not understand that having a strong domestic economy, strong domestic energy policy translates into leverage on the geopolitical scale internationally because we could reduce russia's revenue from exporting their liquid natural gas by getting into the market. we could reduce that by 30% and keep in mind that 50% of russia's tax base comes from the sale of oil and natural gas but to many of our friends and allies in western europe. stuart: the president obviously knows this coming knows that if we export big time to europe we get leverage over vladimir putin. he knows this, why does he keep denying -- is it 23 permits that are on the table at the moment for the export of liquefied natural gas that are being held up? the president knows what is going on. why does he hold it up? >>
kind of exogenous event, could be something as simple as russia ukraine becoming more difficult. >> okay. >> don't know. something out of the ordinary. >> i wondered if you were going to say growth is disappointing and perhaps won't get the growth the market assumed. if you look at what's happening in the market you have strong rotation. we've spoken many times about the high flying tech stocks, biotech, social media, that have lost a huge amount of value but you see weakness in housing. in financials. economically sensitive areas, the utility index is pushing up towards an all-time high. what do you do with that rotation? do you follow through? >> well, we look at the individual companies and their own valuations. so we think that some of the high flyers, which have come down, are still at fairly lofty valuations and hard to justify. we contrast that with other old technology dinosaurs like microsoft, cisco, hewlett-packard, where their actual results have been quite good and their valuations are very attractive. so we wouldn't necessarily look at the rotation in a kind of a se
